Cal signees Justice Sueing and Grant Anticevich
BERKELEY -The first recruits of the Wyking Jones era have officially signed on with the Golden Bears. Justice Sueing and Grant Anticevich inked their National Letters of Intent to join California men's basketball this fall, Jones announced today.
"I am very excited to announce the addition of Justice and Grant to our Cal family," Jones said. "Both are tremendous basketball players, but more importantly they are unbelievable young men of high character."

A 6-6 small forward by way of Hawai, Sueing moved to Los Angeles in high school to further his basketball career, where he's been a standout at Mater Dei in Santa Ana, Calif. Sueing averaged a team-high 18.2 points in his senior season, and is rated as a four-star prospect according to ESPN and as a three-star forward by Scout. In Mater Dei's CIF semifinal victory, he scored 25 points. Mater Dei won the Trinity League and was runner-up in the CIF Open Division and CIF State Southern Section.

"Justice is a versatile wing who can score in a number of different ways and impact the game on both ends," Jones said. "He has a great feel for the game and comes from a program in Mater Dei that has a tradition of players that have gone on to have success in college and beyond."

He was named an All-CIF-SS Open Division and OC Register All-County selection this year, and was tabbed as a USA TODAY All-USA Hawaii Boys Basketball Team early in his high school career. In the classroom, Sueing is also a member of the National Honor Society and was named to the Mater Dei honor roll and All-Academic First Team. He plans to attend medical school and become an orthopedic surgeon when his basketball career is over.

Sueing's father, the elder Justice Sueing, was a standout at the University of Hawaii under Riley Wallace from 1994-96 and played professionally in Israel and Luxembourg.

A 6-8 power forward from Sydney, Australia, Anticevich has experience with the New South Wales State U20 and U18 squads, most recently claiming a silver medal at the Australian U20 National Championships. Anticevich was a two-time all-conference selection and team captain for Newington College, leading his squad to back-to-back conference and state titles in his junior and senior seasons. Newington compiled an 80-17 record in Anticevich's final two seasons.

"Grant is a skilled post player who excels away from the basket with his ability to shoot and his exceptional passing," Jones said. "He too has an unbelievable feel for the game and high basketball IQ."

Anticevich has also been highly active with his state teams, winning gold this year and silver at the Australian U18 National Championships as a junior. He was named to the NSW State Schoolboys Team in 2015 and 2016, and was named Most Valuable Player both years. In 2015, Anticevich and his NSW school state squad claimed gold at the Pacific School Games. With the Australian Schoolboys Team, he picked up another gold at the 2016 championships.

"I chose Cal because of the fantastic coaching staff and the incredible school that Cal is," Anticevich said. "I just knew that it was the right place for me both on and off the court.

Anticevich and Sueing are the latest addition to Cal's incoming class, which already includes Wooden Award High School Player of the Year Juhwan Harris-Dyson and Utah product Trevin Knell, who will defer to serve a two-year LDS Church mission immediately following high school graduation and will reclassify to 2019.
